The Drink Trust – supporting drinks industry people

The Drinks Trust launches campaign to support individuals in the drinks industry

Today, The Drinks Trust launches a campaign to both support individuals in the industry through the weeks ahead and also to fundraise to help deliver that support.

We are specifically fundraising to increase the capacity of the helpline and the volume of complementary therapy services we are delivering. Having thought about how best to assist the people of the drinks industry, and given that there is so much uncertainty, we are dedicated to helping people with the anxiety they may be facing as a result, and to help them to manage this.

We will continue to support people financially where we can, but the volume of people who may be affected makes the cost of financial support very challenging, particularly given we are a small charity. Our priority will be peoples’ mental wellbeing as well as providing financial assistance to the most vulnerable people who face loss of earnings as a result of CV19.

We are asking those in the industry who are able to make donations to the campaign in order to support colleagues who are facing significant challenges and uncertainty. We will also be looking to supply guidelines specifically to individuals, rather than businesses, and while the outlook is still unclear, we will do our utmost to provide information and guidelines on what their choices are for the future.

We are also asking all businesses in the industry who can, to renew or become business partners of The Drinks Trust. These funds will help support the most vulnerable in our industry and also increase the services and support the Trust is now dedicated to delivering.

Key messages:

  1. Access support through our helpline
  2. We are increasing grants for telephone therapy five-fold in the coming weeks
  3. Please donate if you can afford to
  4. Become a business partner and support more members of the industry with work-life and well-being services, these are needed more than ever before
